Dear Student,
There is a difference between ray diagrams of the spherical mirrors and lens. As the mirrors involve only reflection, the rays or arrows are drawn on one side only while lenses involve refraction and we draw rays or arrows on both sides.
When rays are extended for mirrors on the other sides, dotted lines are used and not arrows.
